DeLong Elementary dean will be assistant principal next year

Tacoma News TribuneApril 9, 2014 


DeLong Elementary School in Tacoma will have a newly created position --  assistant principal -- next year, due to its growing population.

Current Delong Dean of Students Kristeanna Devenuti has been named to the new post beginning July 1, Tacoma Public Schools announced.

Prior to arriving at DeLong this school year, Devenuti taught in the Clover Park School District for eight years. 

DeLong, located on Tacoma’s west side, currently has the second largest elementary student population in the district, with 560 students.

The school district created an assistant principal position and eliminated the dean position. While Devenuti will continue with duties she had as dean, she will assume more responsibility as assistant principal. She will focus on student and staff safety, academic achievement and family involvement.
